The sorry story of Telltale Games has taken another step closer to the grave, this time with the delisting of an array of licensed games on Steam.
Telltale Games is in the process of closing down and liquidating its assets, and in doing so the business-end needs to wind down. With there being nowhere for the money to actually go, nor a way for any license fees to be paid, Telltale’s games are subsequently being delisted.
The good news is that Telltale titles you currently own digitally will still be yours. You’ll be able to delete them and redownloaded, them just like any other game. Your time is running out if you want to buy any Telltale games you don’t own already though as more games are sure to follow suit.
This is all part and parcel of our digital future we embraced so readily. Telltale Games isn’t the first and it won’t be the last studio to go under, and more games will disappear into a digital grave. The good news is we’ll still maintain access provided we buy the games before they’re delisted, while the work of certain more, infamous… sorts, means there should still be means to download these games from somewhere long after their creators have given up the ghost. Torrents, basically, and arguably a perfectly valid reason to use them.
